    If you're referring to my post and the ones following, the discussion was not about the VVM built into the OS. The discussion was about getting YouMail to work as an alternative. It appears the issue is getting the conditional call forwarding working (required by YouMail so that it can pick up your missed calls) when an IMEI was used from another phone to resolve the LTE issue.

    -Skippy


    Exactly the issue. I've got my account manager (I'm on a business account) talking to AT&T trying to fix my call forwarding issue. I will update as soon as they have contacted me telling me it's fixed. Hopefully it's a simple fix on AT&T's end.

    AT&T says I have CF, but YouMail still says that my calls cannot be forwarded at this time. Ugh.

    Well, AT&T says that the conditional call forwarding appears working on their end, so still no VVM through YouMail. But I will not give up!! I have LTE & hotspot, so vvm feels like a luxury at this point. Sure, I've had it for the past several years, but I'm enjoying this phone / WM experience too much to let that deter me.

    OK I'm sorry. What exactly is VVM? And why is it so seemingly important?
    Personally, I can't be asked to use VM. I don't even set it up lol. But that's a personal thing!

    VVM or Visual VoiceMail allows you to have the voicemail right on your phone without dialing into an inbox. You get text showing details about who called and when, etc. It has play, pause, delete and other controls. It plays like an audio file and you can mark times for coming back to important details easily.

    It offers a Visual as well as an audio record of the VoiceMail. I find it severely useful, practical and efficient. Some services even offer a transcript sent to email.

    I just set up iseevm for the 950 Xl. Thanks to all who contributed to this thread, because I think that will be helpful. I have gotten used to having VVM, so this app is nice to have.

    Thanks again to all.

    One question on this app - is there any reason to import contacts?

    I didn't. I only got it up and running with the minimal config. Now that I've lived with it for a few weeks, it is far superior to the ATT VVM that I thought I would miss. You'll see after you have gotten a few calls. And the caller-id information you will be provided with some calls is outstanding!

    Great product. I'm a bit embarrassed to have not known about it earlier. It's obviously a mature service.

    I am almost afraid that I am getting a little accustomed to this phone. I was bought it to sell it, but while testing some other phones, I lost the sim adapter I was using in my 640, so I popped the sim in this phone, set it up, and started to use it.

    I am still trying to get a 950, which I think I'll use as the daily, which I'll end up using, and still sell the XL. For now though, it sure is a nice phone.

    I've actually considered getting a single Sim 950XL and give the dual sim to a family member. And it's NOT for VVM! I'll stay with ISeeVM.
    I'm convinced I'll get better weak-signal (1 or 2 bar) LTE from it. No way to verify without getting one.
    (My old 1520 and a cheap 640 both grab and hold a weak signal better)

    Sure would be easier if I just went with the smaller 950 from AT&T, but I'm a long time Big Phone convert.

    Gordonfink...

    Would you share some of the details of your situation as many seem to still have problem.
    ATT ?
    950 XL Dual Sim ?
    LTE showing ?
    Hotspot active if turned on in settings ?
    Organic IMEI or a code from some other device ? Which model other device?

    These facts may help some of us see the error in our ways on getting the Youmail ISeeVM working.
    Thanks.

    With YouMail/ISeeVM - I imported contacts. That allows my greeting to use the contact's name...

    I.E.: You might hear, "Hi, gordonfink. RumoredNow can't come to the phone right now, please leave a message."

    Of course it would have your, and my, first names unless those nicknames were given to YouMail.


    Now that raises the question for me... Can anyone confirm that Smart Greeting works without contacts being synced to YouMail?

    Since I didn't do any kind of extravagant effort to start using this service, I wasn't sure what my callers were greeted with. So I just called myself to see. Some really happy sounding lady says "Hi, Bruce can't come to the phone right now so please leave a message"

    I know I'm a bit pathetic when it comes to voice calls (I avoid them like the plague) so that works good enoough for me. :)

    I just called my number to see, and it picked up my name from caller ID. In my case, it has the caller ID wrong, and calls me Carlton.

    I had the same problem as you, I was getting errors with activating my Youmail account last night, so I called ATT this morning and he said my Call Forwarding was not turned on. He turned it on, I rebooted my phone and I was able to activate my account.

    I've had my 950xl activated on Att for a few days now thanks to the bogo deal. I'm on the same build and have still not gotten vvm... Any help?

    I didn't have/see an option to set it up, but once I received a voicemail, it finally asked for my passcode to setup visual VM. So maybe try leaving yourself a voicemail. (I'm on the most current software thru fast ring insiders.)

    I don't think this is correct because I'm on insider slow ring and I don't have VVM....

    Just got the phone yesterday. VVM wouldn't work at first, but I also made the mistake of booting the phone without a sim card in it. Did a hard reset with the sim in it and upgraded to 10.0.10586.218. Voila VVM is working perfectly fine. I am on T-Mobile US if that matters.

    It works well on AT&T with both a 950 Dual-SIM and a 950 XL Dual-SIM. :)

    Call your number and leave a voice mail. You will then be prompted with your VM password and VVM will show up. I've done this on two 950XLs and a 950 unlocked on AT&T.

    sorry, I forgot to mention (which I don't think makes a difference) I'm on a Canadian carrier BUT I don't even have the "settings" for VVM like the others seem to have... I'm on the slow ring... 14295.1005 and others in this thread are saying they have VVM with 10.0.10586.218 which doesn't make sense as I have a later version and no VVM.
